This book includes 15 programming and constructional projects, and covers the range of AVR chips currently available, including the recent Tiny AVR. No prior experience with microcontrollers is assumed. John Morton is author of the popular "PIC: Your Personal Introductory Course", also published by Newnes. It provides the hands-on way of learning to use the Atmel AVR microcontroller. Project work is designed to put the AVR through its paces. This is the only book designed to get you up-and-running with the AVR from square one.
